ONE Store Beta Now Available

If you’re a regular shopper of Uniqlo like we are, then you’re probably familiar with the UTGP line. Uniqlo’s UT Grand Prix is a yearly t-shirt design contest that’s open to everyone in the world, with the winning designs each year being immortalized as Uniqlo graphic tees.

The 2018 contest had a Marvel theme, with the year before that being Nintendo. For the Uniqlo UTGP 2019 though, the theme is Pokemon!

Now on its 13th year, UTGP 2019 will accept entries via smartphones and tablets to enable as many as possible to take part. The competition’s Grand Prize winner will receive USD $10,000; other winners will also receive cash prizes. All winning designs of the contest will be featured in Uniqlo Spring/Summer 2019 collection, with t-shirts being avialable for men, women, and kids.

The competition will be judged by the following:

  • Tsunekazu Ishihara, President of The Pokémon Company
  • Ken Sugimori, Managing Director of Game Freak Inc.
  • NIGO® (UT Creative Director)

The top three winners will be awarded in a ceremony in Tokyo, and they’ll be able to watch the 2019 Pokémon World Championships in Washington, DC. Entries can be submitted on October 23 until December 2, 2018 (10:59 PHT) at the official UTGP 2019 website.
